Perhaps there's some confusion with OS X which starts life as FreeBSD, but uses a mach kernel.

Perhaps there's some confusion with OS X. :-)


OS X started life as NEXTSTEP, using the CMU Mach 2.0 kernel written by Avie Tenavian and a BSD-4.3_reno userland, heavily influenced by SunOS 3/4. Since NEXTSTEP, Apple has updated the BSD layer to 4.4Lite and included changes derived from FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD-- but mostly the latter, at least at the time I was looking.

Certainly it's false to claim that OS X started as FreeBSD.
